What defines a desperate housewife? Would it be a bunch of flighty, sexually desperate married women who hop from bed to bed? Have you noticed how the TV show Desperate Housewives demeans women! Many people might think the show is real cute and funny but whatís so funny about a married woman being disloyal to her husband?
[A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.] Proverbs 31:10
In the bible days rubies were more precious than gold, and we all know how precious gold is today. Why do you think it was important to have a noble wife back then? Isnít it important today for a man to be married to a woman of good character? How does it help the man if his wife is a woman of godly character? It builds him up, doesnít it? Husbands arenít so lucky today. Itís hard to find a woman who remains pure until marriage.
But this is what happens when women have been conditioned into believing its okay to have a multitude of sexual partners before and even after marriage. They have been told to take their time and experiment, after all there is a lot of fish in the sea, try them all! The conditioning process begins when a girl is barely ten years old. It is part of the culture in America. Most fifteen and sixteen year olds already have had sex. This is what happens when a girl doesnít have a strong spiritual authority (protector) when she is growing up, and this is what happens to a woman who has no spiritual authority (protector) in her life and marriage.
But what about AFTER these young women are married? What do you think? Is this show and others like it trying to sway young women into believing that itís ok to betray their husbands? Maybe they want women to do that, you know, commit adultery? Does it give women the validation they need to deceive their husbands and become sexually misplaced?
No doubt about it, the characters on the show are desperate for love. But itís not funny, itís not cute, itís not appropriate, and itís not acceptable in the eyes of God. It is absolutely shameful to womankind! A married woman shouldnít want to watch another married woman sleeping around. What gives? Does she not have respect for the man she married?
In all truthfulness this show is saying that if a woman is not fulfilled and satisfied being a house wife, maybe she ought to go out and flit about a bit, uh? What do you think? Are you a desperate housewife who needs to go flit about like a lightning bug? There are many ways a woman can become fulfilled and satisfied without committing adultery, believe me. It seems all she really needs is a little bit of love.
Unfortunately, when a woman looks for love out into the world this is what she get back. So you see the world canít love you, it doesnít know what love is, and it actually wants to gobble you up with it. Donít fall into the desperate housewife trap. It might seem glamorous and sexy because the characters are beautiful, but its complete brainwash, thatís all it is and there isnít a bit of good come out of it.
Here is one example of a desperate housewife. In desperation an anxious, unfulfilled, and angry housewife seeks answers for her marriage problems by looking out into the world for her answers. She flips on the TV and thereís a show on depicting beautiful, sexy women that are making men out to be little boys who need help going to the bathroom. The resent filled, desperate housewife is hooked, and finally decides to cheat on her husband.
These women are made out to be impious, calculating, and bossy sexpots who come out looking superior over men. All of this entices women in todayís society because they want to be just like those women, instead of the women they are. This is what I got out of watching only fifteen minutes. The show depicts a lot of rebellion, a lot of resentment, and a whole lot of sexual sin.
Meanwhile the angry and desperate housewife with marriage problems is irritated with her lazy, fat husband. She just wants to be happy and satisfied like the beautiful women she sees on television. She becomes infatuated with all the glamour and beauty.
She feels these women are in control of their lives even though they continually deceive their husbands. Eventually the anxious housewife cheats on her husband because she feels it is the only way she will be happy and content. This is how she gets the love she needs, the validation she craves, and the satisfaction she wants.
[The body was not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.] 1 Corinthians 6:13
What this woman should have done, instead of being desperate and confused is look within herself for the answers so she could figure out what might be making her feel desperate? Why does she feel out of control? In essence, until she comes to terms with what is really making her feel unfulfilled, she will continue to look out into the world for validation of self.
The problem is women arenít defining who they are by placing more importance on their God-given positions and working towards that purpose for their life, but rather looking out into the world where women have no idea what God can do for them and their marriage. Without God there is no spiritual purpose for a woman to work towards in her life, and she will become bored and desperate being a housewife.
Donít fall into the desperate housewife trap. A woman does not need to degrade her self by behaving in desperate ways. She only needs to figure out why she would want to become desperate in the first place. Desperation will lead you nowhere, it will take your soul, and youíll never get it back. You already have all the spiritual tools within your self to become a totally satisfied woman without becoming desperate!
[Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.] 1Peter 5:7
[Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.] Psalm 119:105
